And getting the basics right would be great too which means, being able to fly IFR with an artificial horizon that's still indicating the correct pitch attitude after e.g. a touch & go.

A F-5 that has the identical performance in a head and in a tailwind.

Despite all these shortcomings it's still the airplane I'm flying almost exclusively in DCS and I'm enjoying it a lot.

Since this is pure manual flying, I even doubt that the FWB F-16 will change this.

Not for the exterior model, still using specular last time I checked.
And the unofficial roughmet patch red channel is based off the specular textures (instead of "shadows" included in the texture template)

I tried updating the normals for exterior while doing a 4k retex of some swiss skins, but quickly gave up.

I just don't get it, again and again I see people complaining about the cockpit looking old. It already got an update a few months ago and it's looking great. I mean, why...

Thanks Jamie.


sorry for late reply.
I didn't fly it for over a year now, but since the bugs were kind of big, (one of the wheels would not come down, radar controls were not working and so on) my guess is they fixed it. Also since I don't see people talking about these or any big issues, makes me guess that is indeed the case. other then that, it is a simple and fun to fly, go for it.

I’m unsure if this is actually a bug. It’s possible that the F-5’s attitude gyro tends to precess a bit more than others. Even the one in the F/A-18 will indicate incorrectly after some dynamic maneuvering. Maybe before pushing the throttles up, take a second to re-cage it?

Haven't tested lately, but this usually happens already after a normal traffic pattern when touching down with significant nose up attitude . As soon as you lower the nose, the AH will be off by at least 2deg.

Interesting. I find that VR shows up flaws in the cockpit much more than on a monitor.
I love the F-5, but an updated cockpit is overdue imo.
